Welcome to my humble site....
Hajimemashite minna san....welcome to my site on my fave Japanese Pop Culture likes such as dramas, movies, magazine scans, promo events etc. Mainly concentrate on my faves...Keyakizaka46... Erina Mano... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!
Also these days(mid-2017) have many posts for Korean actresses, dramas and films that are worth checking out as over the years have become a much bigger fan of Korean dramas versus the ones from Japan.
Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
New item on the right is the 'Featured Post of the Day', will be putting some fabulous oldie posts which some of you may have missed the first time around, all will be at least one year old.

Mina Oba: Magazine scans #16....
First Mina post of the year, there's been a few SKE magazione posts but sadly none of them featured Mina. Should be more news for her soon along with the rest of the group as their next single will be coming out on July 4th. Title of the tune is "Ikinari Punch Line", may be their last single for 2018 as they haven't released more than two singles in a year since 2014.
EDIT: The results are in for this year's AKB Senbatsu elections, for the first time Mina made the top sixteen finishing in the eighth spot. SKE really dominated the election as they also had the top two positions with Jurina being #1 overall.
Will work on a few group posts soon as there have been some recent mag spreads plus there should be some promoting for the single. Mina is now 26, quite a few SKE members are in that age range. But for years have been saying no Idol is more deserving of a photobook than she is but the odds are slim to none she'll ever have the honor which is a crime. Three recent spreads for today and though Mina doesn't appear in as many mags as she once did she often graces the cover such as this first set which is from the June 12th issue of Young Champion who are celebrating their 30th anniversary.
Way too small of a spread from Young Gangan #12.
Final set is another spread from Young Gangan, this one is a bit bigger and once again Mina is on the cover for their July 6th(!) issue.
